What do you enjoy most about your job? It is most rewarding to see patients recover from conditions they thought "they just had to live with.” Many individuals are unaware of the dramatic effect that chiropractic, physical therapy, orthopedic rehabilitation and exercise can have in their recovery from most musculoskeletal conditions.
What is the most challenging aspect of your job? Educating patients in the preventive measures they can take to speed up the healing process and avoid recurring problems.
What is your best personality trait? My friendly and outgoing personality.
What do you like to do in your spare time? I most enjoy spending time with my family, which is the reason I left my practice in Illinois to return home. In the spring and fall I enjoy hiking, biking and camping. In the summer, I like to travel somewhere cooler, especially to the western National Parks. I always love spending time with my Great Dane/Yellow Lab mix “Jim.”
